We joke about our department that way as well. If you think about it... why not? ALL Animal Control agencies are under different 'departments' within a city... Ours in under Parks, Recs and Tourism. My old one was under the Police. Some are under the Fire Dept, Codes, city Admin, the Health Dept. the SPCA/shelter.... or even independent... WE have the same training/dangers/risks as the PD, yet many of us don't carry weapons. In my city... the Park Rangers have more authority than we do AND they carry weapons and have the aurthority to run tags and pull people over... and they are in the same Parks, Recs and Tourism... so, what gives?
